Bushy Summers has been designed purely to nurture you and feed your creative soul.

Resting on the shores of Lettes Bay, Tasmania, our shack is simple and cosy with stunning views of the bay to help you unwind and feel inspired, as you disconnect in nature and reconnect to self.

The space
Feel nurtured at Bushy Summers.

Your day will gently unfold as you wake up to the sound of birdsong or the quack o the resident ducks as they wander up and down the bay expecting something delicious to be thrown their way.

Nurture your mind:
Completely relax as you curl up with a pot of tea and book in the comfy double bed, or soak in the luxurious cast iron claw foot bath and glimpse the gum tree tops.

Nurture your body:
Cook your favourite meal in our simple, little kitchen or take a long stroll along the shoreline and explore nature.

Nurture your soul:
Sit out on the deck with a glass of Tasmanian wine and read, write, paint, make... feel inspired.

This is truly a magical place, and the perfect retreat for one to two people.

Guest access
Guests can enjoy the whole cabin and wander around the communal grounds of Lettes Bay. Bushy Summers sits tucked away at the end of the bay which makes it quite private.

Other things to note
There is no freestanding shower - bath only and no TV.

Parking is not on site however it is available a short walk away on the opposite
side of the road.

Bushy Summers may not suit guests with mobility issues because parking is not on site, we have a freestanding bath and there are 4 steps leading up to the front door of our cabin.

Please note sometimes phone coverage can be impossible. Telstra is the most reliable mobile service. We do have wifi in the house but you will need to have all your essential information printed out when you are on the road.

The weather can be a little wild in winter and very occasionally the roads can be cut off. Therefore you need to consider travel insurance in case you need to cancel at short notice.

Location

Strahan, Tasmania, Australia

The serenity is what makes Lettes Bay so special. As do the constantly changing weather and enormous skies. The bay is more alive during the summer months but the winter is also very special. Rug up and get out for long walks, take a steam train ride or explore Macquarie Harbour and take a Gordon River Cruise.

For supplies, the local IGA (grocer) is a 10 minute drive. They stock most things you will need. The best coffee is to be found at the Coffee Shack and they sell good homecooked treats. There is a liquor store in Strahan, along with a petrol station and laundromat.

The West Coast Wilderness Railway is only a 5 minute drive from the cabin and the Gordon River Cruise terminal is less than a 10 minute drive.
